LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

GivingXcelerator (INCLUDING ITS AFFILIATES, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUBCONTRACTORS OR LICENSORS) IS NOT LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES OR, IN ANY EVENT, FOR DAMAGES EXCEEDING THE LESSER OF ONE HUNDRED U.S. DOLLARS ($100.00) OR THE FEES YOU PAID TO GivingXcelerator FOR THE TRANSACTION FROM WHICH THE CAUSE OF ACTION AROSE.

For jurisdictions that do not allow us to limit our liability: Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement, if your jurisdiction has provisions specific to waiver or liability that conflict with the foregoing, then our liability is limited to the smallest extent possible by law. Specifically, in those jurisdictions not allowed, we do not disclaim liability for: (a) death or personal injury caused by our negligence or that of any of its officers, employees or agents; or (b) fraudulent misrepresentation or intentional misconduct; or (c) any liability which it is not lawful to exclude either now or in the future.

GOVERNING LAW/FORUM OF DISPUTE

These Terms and Conditions and our provision of services to you shall be governed by the laws—state, federal, or otherwise—applicable in the State of Delaware, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. You and GivingXcelerator agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the county of Sussex County, Delaware You agree that: (i) Platform shall be deemed solely based in Delaware (where we have our headquarters); and (ii) Platform shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over GivingXcelerator, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than Delaware. Any dispute arising from or relating to these Terms and Conditions or our provision of services to you must be resolved in a court of competent jurisdiction in the State of Delaware.

If you fail to bring a dispute in compliance with these "Forum of Dispute" provisions, we may make a motion to dismiss your claim, which you must consent to, and you will be responsible for all of our reasonable attorneys' fees, costs, and disbursements involved in making such a motion. Additionally, the successful party in any dispute will be entitled to receive from the unsuccessful party all of its reasonable attorneys' fees, cost, and disbursements.

You and GivingXcelerator each agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and GivingXcelerator relating in any way to or arising out of this or previous versions of the Terms or your use of or access to Platform shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this agreement to arbitrate. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the provisions of the Terms as a court would. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent:

GivingXcelerator Inc
ATTN: GX Copyright Agent
16192 Coastal Hwy.
Lewes, DE 19958

The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location. We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights. If for any reason, a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, the dispute shall be exclusively brought in a court of competent jurisdiction located in the Delmar and County of Sussex, Delaware. Subject to the arbitration provisions set forth above, the successful party in any dispute will be entitled to receive from the unsuccessful party all of its reasonable attorneys’ fees, cost, and disbursements.

WAIVER AND RELEASE

If you are a resident in a jurisdiction that requires a specific statement regarding waiver and release then the following applies. For example, California residents must, as a condition of this Agreement, waive the applicability of California Civil Code Section 1542 for unknown claims which states: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR." You hereby waive this section of the California Civil Code and any similar provision in law, regulation or code that has the same effect or intent as the foregoing release.

LIQUIDATED DAMAGES

Please report any violations of the Agreement, by flagging the posting(s) for review, or by emailing to: Compliance@GivingXcelerator Platform. Our failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive our right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. You understand and agree that, because damages are often difficult to quantify, if it becomes necessary for GivingXcelerator to pursue legal action to enforce the Agreement, you will be liable to pay GivingXcelerator the following amounts as liquidated damages, which you accept as reasonable estimates of GivingXcelerator’s damages for the specified breaches of the Agreement: If you post a message that (1) impersonates any person or entity; (2) falsely states or otherwise misrepresents your affiliation with a person or entity; or (3) that includes personal or identifying information about another person without that person's explicit consent, you agree to pay GivingXcelerator one thousand dollars ($1,000) for each such message, plus attorneys fees and costs. If you post Content in violation of the Agreement, other than as described above, you agree to pay GivingXcelerator one hundred dollars ($100) for each Item of Content posted, plus attorneys fees and costs. If you aggregate, display, copy, duplicate, reproduce, or otherwise exploit for any purpose any Content (except for your own Content) in violation of the Agreement without GivingXcelerator’s express written permission, you agree to pay GivingXcelerator three thousand dollars ($3,000), plus attorneys fees and costs, for each day on which you engage in such conduct. Otherwise, you agree to pay GivingXcelerator’s actual damages plus attorneys fees and costs, to the extent such actual damages can be reasonably calculated. Notwithstanding any other provision of the Agreement, GivingXcelerator retains the right to seek the remedy of specific performance of any term contained in the Agreement, or a preliminary or permanent injunction against the breach of any such term or in aid of the exercise of any power granted in the Agreement, or any combination thereof. In its sole discretion, GivingXcelerator may elect to issue a warning before assessing damages.
